Our Real Estate Agent/Friend, Barbara Bruce is an exceptional Human Being. My wife and I had been looking for a Home for almost three years. Then one Sunday afternoon after Church, we were looking at a house that sort of fitted our descriptions of what we were looking for.
I was outside and my wife was inside the house talking to Barbara. They hit it off immediately. We had talked to several Agents these past years, and we did not connect with any of them for whatever reason. My wife and Barbara found the ideal home, and a bid was put in, and it was accepted.
The next several months were interesting. We were selling our home and using those funds to purchase our ideal home. The agent for the home we were purchasing suddenly was adversarial towards Barbara and us for some unknown reason. Our loan was approved for the new purchase, as was the sale of our old home. Anyway, Barbara continued to be professional towards this listing Agent in spite of unprofessional remarks towards her and the termite company.
Barbara’s personality is/was always cheerful and pleasant. I felt guilty that we appeared to take up a lot of her time. As usual she laughed it off and explained to my wife and I that she loved helping people/friends find their dream/ideal homes. She is committed to her clients and passionate about her business.
As we were about to move in our new home, the listing agent did nothing to prepare her clients to move out in a timely matter so that we could move in. Barbara had to inform this couple, (the sellers), that they we no longer the owners of our home. Barbara’s husband, children, and my wife and I helped this older couple move their personal belongings out on a U-Haul truck that Barbara’s husband rented which took a day and a half to finish.
Barbara also helped us find tradesmen to work on different projects in our home that needed our immediate attention. Barbara Bruce continues to call, and drop by the house to check in on us. Sometimes, she brings coffee and donuts to our home. This is not just a Real Estate Agent, Barbara Bruce is a part of our Family.
Thank God for people like her and her Family.
